The two movies own either sides of compass in charges of 'grit' and 'glam'. The scales that they've been shot in are also the effect that they've had is thoughtful.

A Star Is Born is the 3rd remake of a same name movie made in 1937.  In 1954, they restarted the film with James Mason and Judy Garland. Later in 1976, they rebooted again with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand. Story of 2018 version turns around experienced artist Jackson Maine. He discovers and falls for struggling artist Ally. She'd almost broken off her dream to succeed as a singer just before Jack persuades Ally into the bright beam of light. A Star Is Born is also the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper.

In another way, Roma is a semi self-portrayal black and white movie. The film tells story about early upbringing of movie-maker Alfonso Cuaron at Mexico City in the 1970s. Roma received the Golden Lion at the 75th Venice International Film Festival.

Other possible nominees to 91st Oscars were First Man of Damien Chazelle and If Beale Street Could Talk of Barry Jenkins.
